Celebsathi: Connecting Celebrities and Business in a New Way

A celebrity has a large audience and influence; they can act as influencers and are considered idols for their fans. People love to see them on the screen and would always dream of connecting with them through any means. But connecting with celebrities is not as easy as we desire. Most of the celebrities keep themselves away from the crowd of the fans. Also, promoting the business through an influencer is a great idea to access their audiences. However, as mentioned above, reaching celebrities, building trust, and collaborating are burdensome for people until you have someone to fill the gap.

To overcome the gap between celebrities and the people, three friends: Jiwan Shrestha, Shiva Subedi, and Rajesh Shrestha, came together with a platform called “Celebsathi.” Mr. Jiwan comes from a digital marketing background, while Mr. Rajesh comes from an event management background, and Mr. Shiva is NRN.

Later, the company also started to connect the business and celebrity and started influencer marketing. The platform connects celebrities and small to medium enterprises virtually. 

Whom does Celebsathi benefits?

All the small and medium businesses from any location can reach out to celebrities to promote their business.

According to the co-founder of Celebsathi, Mr.Jiwan Shrestha, “It was the best time to get started as business and celebrities were affected by the pandemic. Celebsathi helps small businesses or startups who have limited marketing budgets and want to get a celebrity to promote the business through video or their influential social media profile but can’t reach them.”

How much does a celebrity charge in Celebsathi?

The company does not have any pricing module since the categories are vast for marketing, and celebrities also charge accordingly. The company takes a few percent as a service charge from the celebrity. But there is transparency in the payment. Also, the celebrities are assured of the money due to the prepaid working module.
